Here we GROW again!

Wow! Who would thought it!!! Only 9 months after bringing home Sam, we've submitted LOI on another little boy!!! WOW! How exciting! We are truly overjoyed to be adding to our family....are we a little nervous...sure! But we've thought and prayed hard and we are as sure as you can be when you make that leap of faith! We know we have wonderful family friends and faith to help us through! This little cutey stole my heart the day I met in August of 2009 when we toured Sam's orphange. At the time there was a family considering and Mike and I joked in the car on the way home what a "relief" it was because there was no way we could have left him behind!

3 months later when his file shows up on Rainbow Kids, I sadly knew something did not work out for that family. At the time, it was just to soon for us. So I put on my advocating hat and worked HARD for "Bryce" I posted his file everywhere....told everyone in the adoption community about him...asked everyone I knew to post him on their blog.....All I got was crickets...nothing, no response. Of course now I know he was waiting for us!!! 6 months later through a series of complicated events....we've started the paperchase again......thats the part I'm NOT looking forward to but the rewards that wait.....oh so sweet!!

Wish us luck send your prayers our way, and I plan on doing my best to keep you updated on the happening of my sweet wonderful family!!!

Today was the last day of school! My time flies! I now have an 8th grader, 4th grader and a 1st grader...gulp!!!


  1. Ok, so I'm going to stalk your blog now! Ha,ha,ha!! :0) I'm so excited for you! He's so handsome and has such a sweetness about him. Prayers are being sent for a quick and smooth process!

    PS.....what does Sam think? Is he excited?

  2. Congratulations! What a wonderful story of love and persistence!
